Malibu Sucks — this car was ok when i first got it, but now it pretty much sucks since it's got about 100,000 on it. the signal lights dont want to work the cd player dont play most of the cds i have i've changed brakes on the car twice in two months.

Pros: it runs somewhat

Cons: almost everything

Malibu — This car is pretty sick, i used to want it when i moved out but then we got the Civic which is a better car. Right now this is my sisters sick ride, but come June it's just chillin at our house more than likely. Its a pretty sweet car performance wise. Looks a little lame, total old person car.

Pros: Nice Interior, Can go fast quick

Cons: Old Person car

Kind Of Plain, But A Good Car — This the car that replaced the Olds. Nothing fancy, just a 4 door tan Malibu. I learned my lesson and drive this one nice when I end up driving it.

Pros: Roomy, good mileage, rides nice

Cons: I don't know if it's just me, but the headrest seems fixed way forward, so I have to tilt the seat back a bit to be comfortable, not really a big deal though.

Good Solid Chevy — She drives it So I need to keep the car in good shape. I can tell you the the still runs like new and rides smooth . I just put a set of rain deflectors/wind today. Great shape for a 2002.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: holding together and no problems

Cons: a little hard on gas, maybe a tune up soon ?

2002 Chevrolet Malibu FWD Review
Liberty says:
Not thrilled about owning this car. I bought it a month ago and its already for sale. This car has horrible gas mileage. I know a v6 uses more gas but Im only averaging 14 city mpg. 120,000 miles on it and its overheating. It wont crank sometimes because of the antitheft. Its looks are a little plain, but my windows are tinted and I bought a steering wheel cover to spice it up a bit. This car does drive very smooth. It has good power and brakes. Its also a large car,,cargo and trunk. Like all cars there are strong points and weak points, however the weak points are expensive.
